IFRS 16 for real estate tenants
Real estate leases will be at the heart of many IFRS 16 implementation projects. They are the ‘big-ticket’ leases that almost every business has, from retailers to banks to media companies.
Our Real estate leases – The tenant perspective (PDF 1.4 MB) publication covers key areas of IFRS 16 that are particularly relevant to tenants in real estate leases. Each section is illustrated with examples based on real-life terms and conditions.
Real estate leases pose many practical accounting challenges for tenants. This is because:
On top of these challenges, tenants will find that the new standard significantly changes how they account for their real estate leases, impacting many key financial ratios.
A successful implementation project will therefore require a good working understanding of the new standard, and of the contracts themselves.
Our Real estate leases – The tenant perspective (PDF 1.4 MB) publication covers key areas of IFRS 16 that are particularly relevant to tenants in real estate leases. Each section is illustrated with examples based on real-life terms and conditions. We hope you will find it useful as you prepare to adopt the new standard in 2019.
A companion publication looking at real estate leases from the landlord’s perspective is coming soon.
